Video Fun: Sex Pistols and Kursaal Flyers

I suppose this ought to be Video No Fun, except that it's actually Pretty Vacant. I always thought this gave the lie to the critics who said the Pistols couldn't play: it's pretty tight actually. But, as someone once said of them, Blimey, these boys were CROSS.

Only a matter of months earlier the Kursaal Flyers had a hit with Little Does She Know. The lyrics are well worth listening to: the most deliciously tortured rhymes since Tom Lehrer. In this Top Of The Pops performance from 1976, the lads are wearing the same costumes they wore for the Golden Mile album cover.
